Firefox Bookmark tool to tag/index/search FAST?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Close to what you asked for, and very useful if you use lots of different browsers is miTaggedMarks (formerly bookkey).

It stores the bookmarks in its own XML file, and has a neat way of assigning and locating tags by point-and-click.

Open-source BookmarkBridge is quite popular.. It is a multi-platform, GUI-based utility that allows user to share bookmarks between all their browsers..

Thanks for the tip lanux128, i had never heard of this one before. Free!
I had purchased Check and Get but that was before i was a little more computer literate.
When i found out it used so much of my computers resources i kind of drop it all together.

K-Meleon is very quick at finding your bookmarks. Much better than Firefox but i prefer the later for extensions and themes. Copernic Desktop Search is another option to search bookmarks.

You could also consider the myurlbar_a extension:
Changes the url bar to allow typing of names instead of addresses. Priority is as follows: bookmarks names, history names, history urls.

It really is a shame though that it's not being developed anymore:
Lev's homepage (developer myurlbar_a).


  I use this program, on occassion:

Guillotine is a FREE and lightweight Windows utility that allows you to quickly and naturally access items you commonly (and uncommonly) use like programs, bookmarks, contacts, and web searches. The idea is to find things quickly just by typing a few keys, selecting your item, and going on your merry way. It's much more intuitive than hunting down those items as you normally would. It may take a while to break your old habits, but once you do, you'll see how much more intuitive it is to your normal workflow.

  The FARR screenshot above is pretty similar to how this program works, but you don't need any "extra commands"...actually, I am going to try FARR to check it out, as I am sure it does more than Guillotine...


I have a lot of bookmarks...and cannot keep them organized.  I think what I need is a way to index them so I can start typing ... and a tool (TBD) will bring up matching URLS, keys, descriptions. etc.   I know this is what Firefox does...but it just seems slow... and I'm thinking a dedicated tool would be better at the task. 

Anyone have suggestions?  I am going to try using Locate32 ( which I already run for local has text search... but seems like there ought to be some product that is designed to  edit/index and search bookmarks very quickly.

If you have thousands of bookmarks you may want to look into
There's a Firefox plugin that works almost as fast as the browsers' already quick search feature.
There's one thing i like about saving to Firefox, with Deadlink freeware program you can check the validity of your bookmarks and download the favicons.
